Our Services and Clinics

​​


We offer many services at Field Street Surgery, to prevent registered patients traveling to community hospitals for tests that can be done in-house where possible. We intend to run targeted health campaigns and form partnerships with local voluntary groups.

Some of the services we offer include:

  • Chaperones - If there is need for an examination of an intimate nature by the doctor, you may wish a chaperone to be present. You can ask for one of our staff to act as a chaperone, or alternatively you can return for the examination at a mutually convenient time and bring a relative or friend with you.
     

  • Cervical Smears - These are taken by the practice nurse. The Health Authority will usually inform you of the result. If you have not had a report within six weeks of the test, please let us know.

  • Contraception - Family planning advice is available from the doctor or practice nurse. There is a coil/implant self-refer service at Springfield Road Health Centre, Leicester, LE2 3BB. 0116 225 6790

  • IAPT Counselling- This is a free self referral service Vita Health Group 0330 094 5595​

Our services
  • Medical Certificates - Medical Certificates are given at the discretion of the doctor for bona fide medical conditions. Legally, we are unable to back-date these unless we have seen you for the same condition in the recent past.

    Please do not ask for medical certificates over the telephone – we are unable to issue them. You will need to come in for an appointment with the doctor for this.
     

  • Influenza Vaccination - These are available from October onwards each year.
     

  • Spirometry - We now offer lung function tests.
     

  • Chlamydia Screening - Ask at reception for an appointment with the practice nurse.
     

  • 24-hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring - We now have the ability to monitor a patient's blood pressure over 24 hours - this saves the inconvenience of referring you to hospital.
     

  • 24-hour Electro-Cardiogram (ECG) - We have purchsed a 24-hour ECG machine to continually monitor heart activity throughout the day and night.
